Sidmouth Town Under-10s were in action at West Hill for their latest Exeter and District Youth League outing.
The Vikings made the short trip without a couple of regulars, but were boosted by return of Dominic Bennater who has not featured for the Vikings since breaking his leg last season.
Town started brightly, knocking the ball around with real confidence and it was not long before the first chance began to be created.
However, the Wasps’ glovesman, together with some excellent defending, kept them out until some delightful one-touch play involving , Reece Hext and Alex Goody found Riley Pugsley on the left wing.
Pugsley showed great skill beating his man and cutting in onto his right foot and past the defender before unleashing a superb strike that flew into the net.

The Town front three of Pugsley, Reggie Reed and Joe Anning were causing all sorts of problems for the home team and it wasn’t long before the Vikings doubled the lead with a move started by a quick ball from keeper Haiden Clapp to Kieran Wood who’s through ball found striker Anning and he laid the ball off beautifully for Pugsley to slot home his second.
After the break Sid Ridgeway was introduced into Town’s midfield and the team’s control of the game continued.

However, despite all their possession they were unable to find a third goal.
With five minutes remaining Dom Bennater was given his first run out after his lengthy recovery.
With almost the final kick of the game the home side got a consolation, but Town were not to be denied a deserved victory.
